Navigating your lung cancer journey—or that of a loved one—can be overwhelming. At EuroMed, we want to guide you through that process while offering access to some of the most promising alternative treatments for lung cancer. Here, learn about lung cancer and how we can help.
What Is Lung Cancer?
“Lung cancer” is a general term that applies to any malignant growth that begins in the lungs. Typically, lung cancers fall into 1 of 2 categories: non-small cell and small cell. Less commonly, lung cancer may be caused by a slow-growing carcinoid tumor.
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer, making up about 80% of cases. Adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and large cell cancers fall into this category.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is sometimes called “oat cell cancer.” This is because it begins in lung cells that resemble oats.
Keep in mind that cancer that originates elsewhere in the body, such as the breasts, and spreads to the lungs is not lung cancer. The term “lung cancer” only applies to cancer that originates in the lungs.

Causes & Risk Factors
The 2 main types of lung cancer have many overlapping risk factors. They include:
Smoking: This is the most commonly understood risk factor for lung cancer, but smoking is not always the sole cause. If you’re a smoker, quit as soon as you can—it’s never too late to reap the benefits.
Exposure to certain chemicals: Your occupation or even where you live can increase your risk of lung cancer. Long-term exposure to things like asbestos, radon, and diesel exhaust have strong links to cancer.
Family history: The genetic element of lung cancer has not yet been thoroughly studied, but there does seem to be increased risk for children or siblings of lung cancer patients.
The symptoms of lung cancer can be quite varied and rarely present in a particular sequence. While the symptoms listed here don’t always mean you have lung cancer, any new symptom, especially one that persists, should be evaluated by your doctor.
A chronic cough, especially if it’s accompanied by bloody sputum
Recurring chest infections
General fatigue, weakness, or loss of appetite
Shortness of breath or chest pain when breathing
Potential Treatment Options
Our alternative lung cancer treatments can be used as complements to traditional therapies or as special procedures that can enhance your quality of life. At EuroMed, your provider tailors your treatment plan based on your specific condition, including the type, grade, and stage of your lung cancer. Your potential treatment options include, but are not limited to:
Insulin potentiation therapy: One of our most popular and versatile procedures takes advantage of the natural “sugar hungry” nature of cancer cells to administer smaller amounts of chemotherapy. This results in similar therapeutic effects with fewer unpleasant symptoms.
Blue scorpion venom: With much promising research surrounding the efficacy of blue scorpion venom, we’ve embraced this innovative treatment. We use a homeopathic version that’s custom-dosed for each patient.
Hyperthermia: This straightforward protocol is trusted around the world because it uses infrared heat to target and destroy certain types of tumors.
